voting in New EnglandA conservative columnist says the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity has already netted a haul of eye-opening data on voter fraud.

Robert Knight is a senior fellow at the American Civil Rights Union and a columnist for The Washington Times and OneNewsNow. In his latest column – entitled "Vote fraudsters double their opportunities" – he points out that during its recent meeting in New Hampshire, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity received a summary of a 36-page study entitled "America the Vulnerable: The Problem of Duplicate Voting."

"They found thousands of people had voted in two different states and they'd given two different weird addresses – like gas stations, public parks, warehouses, UPS offices, post office boxes," he relates. "These are all illegal addresses for voting, and yet these people were able to vote."

Formation of the Commission on Election Integrity was announced in May and it met for the first time on July 19 in the nation's capital. It met last week in New Hampshire.

Robert Knight"This is the kind of thing the panel will be looking at," Knight continues, referring to the illegal addresses, "and I doubt that the critics are going to be able to cover it up."

The columnist offers an example why this matters: the 2008 Minnesota senatorial election that was won by Democrat Al Franken.

"He defeated an incumbent, Norm Coleman, after several recounts; and they found ballots in car trunks," he recalls. "But Franken ended up with 312 more votes and he won the U.S. Senate seat and then became the 60th vote for ObamaCare. So if you don't think these thinks matter, they matter greatly."

Other examples cited in his column include Republicans losing to Democrats in close races in New Hampshire and Virginia. Knight adds that "for some reason," the progressive candidate always seems to benefit when there's a recount or a close election.

"And those are the very people who are opposing cleaning up the voter rolls – so you do the math," he adds. "You come to your own conclusion."

Knight, who has monitored and written about vote fraud for years, is confident the Commission will come out with solid recommendations that will make U.S. elections honest.
